Fat-Free Veganaise

Fat-Free Veganaise

 Back home again.

First – a very happy New Year to all out there.
Second – I must (again) apologise for not posting for ages! 2016 ended up as a year with much work and travelling, and subsequently very little blogging.
However, I am now back in our lovely kitchen in Cape Town, and making healthy vegan food!
During last year we visited London VegFest London Vegfest again. It was just fantastic to see so many people enjoying plant based food.
And I was thrilled at the amount of vegan products that are becoming available.
I am also delighted by the selection of vegan, or at least vegan friendly restaurants and eateries springing up around the world.
We even managed to find a few in France!

Going Fat Free

Along with eating vegan and healthily, at the moment we are going through a phase of trying to reduce the fat levels in our food.
We have made a tasty and decadent veganaise before, but it did use a lot of oil!
I have just tried this fat free veganaise which uses silken tofu, and it is pretty good. Also very easy.
Found it on a website called Cooking with Plants. Thanks to them for the idea. I have added a few tweaks of my own though.
My version of the recipe:

Ingredients:

One Block silken tofu (279g)
1 T lemon juice
1 T apple cider vinegar
2 t Dijon mustard
1/2 T coconut blossom sugar
1 Stevia tablet, crushed
1 t sea salt
1/4 t crushed black pepper

Method:

Put the whole lot in a blender and whizz up for about a minute. You will need to stop a couple of times and use your spatula to push the mixture down from the sides of the blender jug.
If you want ti thin it down a bit, you could add a drop of soy milk while blending.
Pour the mixture into a jar.
Note it is adviseable to sterilize the jar and lid in boiling water first.

Veganaise in Blendtec

A note on blenders –

My favourite machine is the Blendtec.
I like it mainly because of the Twister Jar accessory. This is ideal for smaller quantities such as this veganaise.
Also, it has a very powerful motor, comes with an additional larger jug, and a well designed spatula that seems to get everythingout of the jug!
Bon Apetit!
